270: after the fervor……


270: after the fervor……

I am not sure fervor is the right word for it, but I didn’t want to start this post off with “after the chaos” which is more like what it has been around here since Halloween.   If  you follow me on Twitter, you know that my DayJob is in retail management, and these holidays seemed especially hectic.  After all these years in that field,  you would think I could make it less hectic, but apparently not…..

I have a mountain of things to share with you “quilty” wise from the last few months!  But first I wanted to share these quilts sent in by some of you that you made with Blue Nickel Patterns.  I am so excited to share what you have done with my ideas. 

First off here is Sarah Norman’s version of my Sundae’s Best pattern done up in mostly Amy Butler’s  fantastic fabrics (I do see one Nicey Jane print  in there)! 


And Pat Hope sent in these beautiful pictures of my Split Pea Soup pattern…..coming “soon” to a quilt shop near you? (I am working this late winter and spring on getting actual, viable, purchasable patterns out in the world.  They may start out as down-loadable PDF’s available online only, but hopefully printed as well in any quilt shop you can help me get them into! 😉  This would be one of them I hope to get out there,  as it was published in Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts  a few years back  and is hard to find now )


Thanks so much for sharing these pictures Sarah and Pat!!  I am so sorry it took so long for me to get them posted!!  (they both sent these pictures to me in October last fall!) 

Next  post….some of my quilts for Free Spirit at Fall Quilt Market 2010…..

Have  an awesome day!  Tell someone you love that you do so love them!!

Peace out!



  • Your post popped up on my blog reader and I could only see the top half inch of the top picture – but I thought “hmmm…that looks familiar!” Thanks again for the great pattern! It went together very smoothly. I love Pat’s quilt too.

  • I love the Pattern that was in Easy quilts – it looks challenging but the design is simple to construct. Pat chose some pretty colors. Thanks for sharing.

  • Umm… easy quilt? If that’s easy, somehow, then you’re a genius for making it easy when it looks so complicated! I tend to like triangles, but that’s one right-angle quilt I might have to do… wow!
